Welcome to American Photo’s photo blog. We colorize black & white photos for museums, media, multi-media, and families like yours.

A visit to our website gets you started:

The year is 1940. There’s nothing quite like Christmas in New York. From the Radio City Rockettes to the window displays at Macy’s in Herald Square. From Harlem to Little Italy, New York City becomes a magical place from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve. Of course, at Christmas, a visit to Rockefeller Center is a must. Ice skaters perfect their figure-8s in the glow of the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. On one side of the rink towers the majestic “30 Rock”, home of NBC television – where from an open window many stories above the street, Late Night host, David Letterman used to delight in hurling watermelons to the pavement below. This 1940 image of Rockefeller Center at Christmas gave me an opportunity to go with a more artsy colorizing flourish. For me, this approach has captured the magic that is the Big Apple at Christmas.

Christmas is coming on like Gangbusters. It’s time to look through your family photo collection. A beautifully-colorized image of your ancestors (suitable for enlarging and framing) makes a wonderful keepsake for the entire family. This year, “Give the Christmas Present of Christmas Past!”
